Description

The space

Brooks Hacienda is located on the doorstep of Manuel Antonio National Park, one of Costa Rica's most prized national parks and the only park that has beach access. It is common to be visited by 3 types of monkeys daily. That is your view. You can listen to the waves pounding the beach. The ocean is about a 10 minute drive to one of the most pristine beaches in the world.

There are many covered decks overlook the swimming pool which is a main feature of this property. From this area one can enjoy the reflection in the skies of the beautiful Costa Rican sunsets and view wildlife in the trees of the tropical rain forest.

The top part of the house is your space.(the owners live below in a private suite from Nov to April) The home was built in Nov 2008, so everything is still like new. The 2 bedrooms are a very good size and each one has its own private full bath. Each bedroom has a queen bed and one bedroom has a single bed by the window... which is full size single bed with 6 ' high density foam... very comfortable.

The kitchen is state of the art and equipped for you to prepare dinner using the local fresh produce and meats. You can enjoy your meal in the elegant dining area inside or on the deck outside.

Guest access

Guests accommodations are the top half of the home. The lower suite is occupied by the owners from Nov to April.

Interaction with guests

We are on hand from Nov to April, to assist our guests with information, tours, assistance in places to shop, restaurants to dine, sunset spots etc. When we are not here, our manager will be available for the same information.

The neighborhood

We have the best neighbours anyone could wish for. Everyone is super friendly and helpful. The homes are kept in excellent condition and the gardens are all well kept. You can enjoy Brooks Hacienda located at the end of a dead end road, boasting privacy and off the beaten path but only 5 mins from some of the best restaurants in Costa Rica. And.. only a 8 min drive to the beach and entrance to Manual Antonio National Park.

Getting around

We encourage guests to rent a car, but many don't and use the taxi service. It is efficient and inexpensive. However the luxury of having your own vehicle is you can explore some of the back roads and smaller towns and beaches, 1/2 hour or 1 hour away. We offer information about transport from SJO to Brooks Hacienda and find most guests love our private driver, who will pick you up from the airport any time of day or night, (and return you) for $170 one way for up to 6 persons.

Other things to note

Please note you will be greeted by our friendly neighbourhood. Every home is private and has approx 1/4 to 1/2 acres of tropical gardens. It is a wonderful, safe environment to bring your family, have a special occasion or honeymooners.

We had a wonderful time at the Brooks Hacienda. It was a little challenging to find initially but we loved the secluded nature of this property. The pool was awesome! We were even greeted by some white faced capuchin monkeys on our first morning while we had some coffee on the deck. I would definitely consider staying at this wonderful property again in the future.

Kate and Randy were impeccable hosts, and their home was the perfect Costa Rican escape. We loved that it sat right at the edge of the national park, and they took the time to point out to us all the amazing animals that were on the property. They were there to help whenever we needed, which was comforting and convenient. The proximity to the beach and Manuel Antonio was more than ideal. We also loved the gourmet kitchen and had the opportunity to hire a private chef that came to the home one night and made us THE most amazing dinner- highly recommend that (Kate should have the information)! We also had massage therapists come to the home and set up on the patio. The pool was also one of my favorite features, as well as the large patio that we worked out on almost every morning and sipped coffee while we looked out on the park. Make sure you check out Cafe Milagro and Emilio's, and find the man on the beach selling empanadas. Kate has a lot of really good recommendations in the book at the house too which we appreciated. All in all, wonderful stay and wonderful hosts. You will have a fantastic time and love both the home and Kate & Randy!

I travel to Costa Rica 3-5 times per year and this was by far the best place I've stayed in. They house and location are absolutely beautiful. Located just minutes from the local grocery store and some of the best restaurants in the area. The beach is just minutes away. Getting to the house was no problem. The gardens around the home and surrounding the pool are amazing. Monkeys, iguanas, and beautiful birds are always around to keep you company. We loved the house so much that I cancelled a reservation at a resort to stay at the home an additional day. Friends and family are already asking me about the place and I will recommend it to anyone traveling to Costa Rica and the Manuel Antonio area. The place is great for both couples and families. The pool is amazing and the patio areas are great for relaxing. I really look forward to going back one day in the near future. I've stayed at other homes in the area and this has been the best one yet! Highly recommended.

Kate answered questions right away, was very friendly, and the house was beautiful. Russ the house manager went above and beyond. We had a flat tire and he came right away to change it, take it to the shop to repair and replaced again. Cannot thank him enough. Russ and Kate speak perfect English which was a big help for us. The grocery store is very close (although you have to drive) and great restaurants nearby, Out favorites were Barba Roja, and Cafe Milagro. The beaches are also quite close, but again you must drive or take a taxi. There is a lot of information about the area in this home. The pool is gorgeous and we either heard Howler Monkeys or saw Capuchin Monkeys from the home. The ope air living space was relaxing and the air conditioning worked well in the bedrooms.

My husband, Randy and I are organic pear farmers in the Okanagan Valley of British Colmubia. We spend the winters in Costa Rica. We chose Costa Rica as our winter home for many reasons. It is a beautiful country with a wonderful climate, beautiful vegetation, wild animals, friendly people and awesome fresh fruits and veggies. The adventurers offered in our area of Manuel Antonio suit all different types of travellers needs. We have been in the Vacation Rental business in Canada since 1987, but with a very short rental summer season, we decided to move it to Costa Rica. We feel we have made a excellent choice and have the best of both worlds. We would love you to come and join us for a week, or 2 or 3.
